Combine mint, sugar and balsamic and reduce by half. Add stock. Simmer for 10 minutes, sit for 30 minutes and then strain. Thicken with corn flour and port if needed. Add knobs of butter and seasoning just prior to serving.

To serve:

Pile a small quantity of coleslaw on one side of the serving dish. Top with a kumara crisp and then place macadamia coated prawn cutlets on the top. On the other side of the plate place a drizzle of mint and balsamic jus. On top of this place the lamb loin slice top with macadamia and pea crust and decorate with Maori potato strips.

Use tomato oil and herb oil in squeeze bottles to decorate plate.

Note many items in this dish can be prepared earlier such as the kumara crisps, mint and balsamic jus, herb and tomato oils, Maori potato strips, macadamia and sweet pea crust. This then allows you to concentrate on the lamb and prawns.

There is no great genius without a mixture of madness. Aristotle
